MISSION STATEMENT:
Together with God we challenge minds, recognise talents and build dreams.
Leigh St Peter’s CE primary School is a caring church school, distinguishable by our Christian Foundation. We have an ethos that is committed to high quality education for all our pupils within an inclusive and nurturing environment.  We hope that all our children will leave our school as confident Christians, responsible citizens and successful learners and with positive memories of their time here.

CHRISTIAN VALUES:
Love, Respect, Friendship, Trust, Resilience, Perseverance, Responsibility.

SCHOOL AIMS:
In a rapidly changing world and in partnership with our families and the community we help children to:

  • develop and act on a personal set of moral values, beliefs and attitudes founded on Christian principles, and to recognise and value a sense of right and wrong,
  • to gain an understanding of and respect for religious and moral values, an appreciation and tolerance of, other groups, races, ways of life and points of view
  • enjoy learning and become independent, self disciplined and self motivated children that achieve the highest standards of which they are capable,
  • develop an awareness and appreciation of human achievements and aspirations, in our own and other societies,
  • develop enquiring, imaginative and creative minds with the confidence to question, and the ability to challenge with knowledge and respect.
  • develop a concern for the quality of their environment and an understanding of the world in which they live,
  • develop, promote and encourage a healthy, active lifestyle

 

Church of England Vision for Education

This document outlines the Church of England’s Vision for Education which as a Church of England School we embrace.
“The vision embraces the spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional, moral and social development of children and young people. We offer a vision of human flourishing for all, one that embraces excellence and academic rigour, but sets them in a wider framework. This is worked out theologically and educationally through four basic elements which permeate our vision for education:  Wisdom, Hope, Community and Dignity.”
